The AR100L is a left-handed Artist series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1981. It was made in Japan.
The AR100L features an arched flame maple top on a double-cutaway mahogany body mated to a set-in three-piece maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and pearloid dot position markers. Components include dual Ibanez humbucking pickups mounted in creme pickup rings with individual volume and tone controls, a Gibraltar Tune-O-Matic style bridge and Quik Change tailpiece with an ornamental scalloped plate, rubberized Sure Grip control knobs and VelveTune machine heads.
The pickups initially were uncovered V2 humbuckers with creme bobbins; for 1982 these were replaced by brass covered Super 58 pickups. For 1983 the Gibraltar bridge and tailpiece were replaced with the Gibraltar II bridge and Quik Change tailpiece.
The AR100 is a right-handed version. The AR300L is a related model with added Tri-Sound pickup switching and split block fretboard inlays.
